Thank the Lord. I've been waiting thirty-two freaking years for Mr. Glassberg to finally upload an upgrade to MY Hartford Spanish > Space > UJB > NFA... becau-because it's MINE!!! - All Mine! Hahahahahahaha. This is my all time favorite Spanish Jam and favorite intro to UJB and favorite UJB body with the transition into NFA also being a favorite (with, of course, no evening ever competing with Cornell for the best NFA body). This is it guys - thirty minutes of pure, unadulterated bliss with a really nice Wharf Rat and Baby Blue to boot. And Barry's recording is a top notch hand-held, "sweet spot" FOB. Accept no other recording ladies and gentlemen - unless Mason Taylor's friends somehow pull a rabbit out of (R.I.P.) his hat in the near future. The rest of the show is also good with Bird Song > Women being a nice and unusual 1st set closer. Don't wait kids - Grab it, throw on your phones, hold on tight and float away...
...and if you have the editing ability to fade out most of Drumz and fade Baby Blue into the last notes of Wharf Rat - Mm mm mm - Now yah got somethin' really, really special.

Could it really be 30 years?
What a great show. Favorite Shakedown I saw live and the whole 2nd set is top-shelf. This audience recording has good punch to it.

Thinking back 28 years ago tonight and wow...were does the time go...I still havent found a better shakedown than this one. I was at this show with about 5 of my good friends...the sound of this tour is second to none..jerrys vocals are great..nuff said..the sailor>saint is played well and the baby blue is the best ever played. If I remember the upper teir was empty for the start of this show. If we only had a time machine...enjoy folks..

too bad we can give half stars... a solid 4.5
minglewood is an OK opener and they play the sugaree too early in the set to really get the best out of it.... the tempo remains very middle of the road throughout much of the set -- but i like how they start ALL OVER NOW ,each coming in one at a time, they get an amazingly danceable vibe going.... they straighten up when bobby comes in with the vocal, but maybe they can keep it going... the energy is picking up.... BOBBY is ready to go for it, -- JERRY plays it clean and gets in some good PLUCKING and PLUNKING, phil is there somewhere.... Brent starts to take a solo but doesn't really step out, Jer comes in at 6:00 with his best Robbie Robertson overtone licks and kicks every one in the butt and keeps things moving along..... he's really having fun.
bird song is always a pleasure, they never get to really firing on all cylinders though. woman smarter was a staple of this tour, they played it pretty much every other show... this is a good version this night, bobby, brent and jerry get together well on the vocals, jerry plays in his best IKO mode -- a good way to end the merely decent first set.
they come out good and UPTEMPO for shakedown in the second, it is too bad PHIL is low in the mix, they get a great rapport going and jerry fires off one sweet line after another -- they really want us to poke around.... Another Killer Shakedown this is one of their BEST EFFORTS on a demanding tune: they get it juuuuussst right: they cross over into the realm of the uncharted around the 10:00 mark.... at 11:00 brent is in the middle of a tasty little blues run and by 12:00 they are in completely nebulous territory, at 13:30 jerry goes back to shakedown street and they deliver the knockout punch at 14:00 singing the chorus one last time.... as shakedown resolves bobby digs into the wistful opening chords of lost sailor...... he is in good voice now, and puts across a nice reading.... "....the shoreline beckons.... there's a ghost wind blowin'.... the chains of your dreams are broken....."
they blaze through St of Circumstance hitting all the sweet spots. as the song concludes jerry is not ready to take the lead -- in fact, has he lost power? broken a string? the drummers keep the groove going and bobby and phil get into a percussive jam.... then brent gets in and phil seems to have gone astray -- BOB & BRENT reach a higher level of communication as they both come in together perfectly on a very hot PIANO LEAD SPANISH JAM or Bobby & Brent Jam #2 @ 2:35 of the segment:
